Strangelove Festival 2021 : VestAndPage : 1 9 Monologue – Letters from Isolation

Sorry, this event has sold out

Strangelove Time-Based Media Festival presents the UK premiere of a performance monologue as part of the ongoing cycle HOME by VestAndPage.

1 9 Monologue is an autobiographical performance monologue about the home of pathogens in the primate body using the example of pulmonary tuberculosis.

In July 2019, atypically, the young German artist Verena Stenke was diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis. Her own experience of being, as a body, home to pathogens flows into this autobiographical performance text while building a bridge between precise self-observation and a global, historical and literary outside.

Supported by Fonds Darstellende Kunste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.

Since 2006, German artist Verena Stenke and Venetian-born artist and writer Andrea Pagnes have been working together as VestAndPage and gained international recognition in the fields of performance art, performance-based film, writing, publishing, and for their collective performance operas and temporary artistic community projects.
